Phillip's major software development experience was working on a MIL-STD-1553B bus analyzer. The software supported monitoring, recording, playback, and decoding messages sent to EW/avionics systems. This software had been written and maintained by GTRI for 10-20 years, leading to a large and unruly code base.

Phillip supported a major release cycle and was responsible for a variety of activities:

  • Integrating support for decoding traffic on new systems
  • Incorporating new interface updates for supported systems
  • Fixing bugs identified in previous releases
  • Reviewing formal software test plan, fixing errors, and incorporating requirements for new feature sets
  • Running formal software tests prior to releasing the software to the customer
